Forrest Woodbush (a.k.a. the Pet Collector) is a character in the 2015 Disney/Pixar film The Good Dinosaur. He is a Styracosaurus (a smaller relative of the iconic Triceratops) carrying numerous animals on his horns.

Official Bio

"Forrest Woodbush is a mysterious Styracosaurus who lives in the wilderness. Like Arlo, he harbors unreasonable fears. His ability to blend into his surroundings helps—along with an unusual (but not-exactly-fierce) collection of forest critters he’s recruited to protect him." He isn't seen again for the rest of the film.[1]


The collection of pets Forrest Woodbush has gathered to protect him is highly eclectic and is composed of several reptiles, mammals, as well as a few birds and butterflies. The pets whose names are known are:

  • Debbie: a bright red Avisaurus, who seems to be Forrest's favorite. Forrest interprets her singing as advice on what he should do.
  • Dream-crusher: a large nondescript Didelphodon which protects Forrest from "unrealistic goals."
  • Destructor: a fox-like Hesperocyon which Forrest believes to protect him from mosquitoes.
  • Fury: a yellow Hylonomus which supposedly protects Forrest from "the creatures that crawl in the night."


  • Forrest's name was never mentioned in the film.
  • Forrest Woodbush made a cameo in Inside Out in the form of a statue during Riley's trip to San Francisco.
  • Forrest Woodbush shares his name with a brother of Arlo's from an earlier version of the film (discarded in the final film).
  • Although he is officially a Styracosaurus and resembles one due to the many horns on his frill, he also has long brow horns and a short nasal horn like a Triceratops.
  • In promotional material from Subway, this character is labeled "Shaman".
  • His skin resembles a birch tree.
